Imaginary Friend

I have an imaginary friend

Does not exist in the real world

I sensed him when I was born

He loves me the way I love him

I am his world and he is mine

My feelings are his feelings

His needs are never outside of me

Again, he is imaginary

Does not exist in the real world


He is in the notes when I sing

My thoughts in my writings

My pain when I am hurt

My joy when I am happy

He is the spark of my eyes

The beauty of my smile

He is everything that I am

Again, he is imaginary

Does not exist in the real world


He cannot be without me

Neither can I without him

He listens what I hear

Sees what I look at

Knows the depths of me

He is the radiance of my body

The kindness of my heart

The passion in my desire

And also my gratification

Again, he is imaginary

Does not exist in the real world

            Wonderfully expressed you seem to channel Dr. Angelou in this piece beautifully written and profound

              That is interesting. I have read some articles in honor to her.
              This writing is a way of living, I may say. Appreciate your read.

                This reads so effortlessly and speaks to how connected and grounded you are, your ability to look within. Interesting there was no dark side.

                • Diamond

                  Some dark writings that are explanatory are there in my poetry but I discarded some which are thought inducing. Thank you for reading and commenting this poem.

                      And so it began here or there.

                      Very enjoyable, but he is not one or the other.
